My Interview At The PCOS Summit – Post Adoption Depression Syndrome

Earlier this year, I was interviewed by Jimi  Sayo, a hypnotherapist from London and also the host of the PCOS Summit. I was invited as a guest speaker at the summit, to discuss my experience and struggle with Post Adoption Depression Syndrome but honestly, Jimi and I had such a great informal chat that we landed up talking way more broadly, about adoption in South Africa, Post Adoption Depression Syndrome and what I wish friends and family knew and could have offered me at the time of placement.

For those of you who don’t know, Post Adoption Depression Syndrome is like Post Natal Depression and the prevalence of Post Adoption Depression is even higher among adoptive mothers than PND, it’s believed this is because often the journey to adoption is a painful and traumatic one. 

For more and my full interview, watch here:

    I saw this tweet on Twitter (duh!) And it lead me to your page.
    I don’t have the bandwidth to watch the video right this second but i have book marked this and have made note to watch it as soon as possible.

    I was one of South Africa’s first 100 cross culturally adopted babies before 1994. And one of the very first within KZN.

    Not only did my parents go through racism, physical and verbal abuse and more but so did I. I have been trying to write my story for years, as it got even more complicated later on in life and still today I battle and suffer with certain treatment from my fellow countrymen. Not everyone obviously but there is still a huge cultural divide and its not the way you think it is, quite opposite actually.

    There is SO much I have to say on this subject, I love to get in contact with the right people and talk about this. I do motivational speaking on another subject on a trauma I went through and find that talking first hand about these issues is important both to me and to others that I could help, parents and child alike.

    Looking forward to hearing from you Blessed Barrness, you can email me from my site or hit me up on the twitter DM at @Ceecestravel 🙂

    Lots of love! And well done!
